Good Morning!
Woke up around 7:30 and decided to take a nice morning ride. I went about 12 miles round trip today. First I headed up to the Publix and used the ATM. Stopped by 2 older guys (70's?) that both said they've been talking about getting mopeds or scooters. They thought my bike was just too cool! :)
So I told them about the forum, and hopefully they'll learn and get involved.

Then I went up to the Barnes and Noble, where I took these pix of my bike, had a cup of coffee...came home.

Nice ride...good start to the day!

Have a good one,
Mark

Pretty bicycle.
Watch out for trouble with any front fender. They jam the front wheel on a motorized bicycle.
Is that a bicycle cable lock.
In addition try a solid steel hoop type lock.
Dont leave your bike unattended for long.
They are a lot of fun.

Lots of attention on these bikes. I can never go anywhere that someone doesnt ask sometimes the conversations gets tedious but i love the bike

sounds like a great sunday morning drive. big part of the fun is riding around stopping places and people want to talk about your ride. first thing they ask is where to get a bicycle motor. then they are amazed that you put it togather. i have been all over the island and havn't seen a motorized bicycle yet. i imagine when my kit gets here this week i will be turning some heads also

Hi guys,
Thanks for the comments...

Spad, what am I supposed to watch out for on the front fender? There's a large gap between the fender and the smaller wheels I put on, and unless 3 bolts come off at the same time, I don't see how it can be trouble...but maybe I'm missing something?

Thanks,
Mark

Specifically where (At the bolt, or on the fender) - I'll make a preemptive attack with JB Weld! Stiffen everything up a bit.


Thanks,
Mark

No need to get too paranoid about vibration damaging the front fender supports .
Just check them when you fill up with gas. If you see a crack FIX it soon.
They jam the front wheel when they fail.

Nice, Chitty. My wife won't even try mine out...she's afraid of it. :)
That's fine, I have a regular bike to ride with her.
